While all eyes may currently be focused on Euro 2016 in France, the new Premier League season is closer than you might think.

Europe’s top international sides are currently battling it out in France for the Euro 2016 title and a host of the Premier League’s top stars are in action at the tournament.

However, it is easy to forget about the prospect of what an exciting season lies ahead in the English top flight.

The 2015-16 campaign will, of course, be remembered for Leicester City’s unprecedented title triumph as they won the league and finished 10 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal in the table.

But the 2016-17 season looks to be shaping up for an even more entertaining affair.

Jose Mourinho is back in the Premier League in charge of Manchester United, while Pep Guardiola is currently gearing up for his first taste of management in English football with Manchester City.

Looking at some of the betting odds for the season ahead, Manchester City are currently the favourites to win the title next season, and are priced at odds of around 2/1 with most bookmakers.

Interestingly, Manchester United are the second favourites and can be backed at odds of around 9/2 with most betting companies.

Chelsea are priced at 5/1 to win the title in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge despite their disastrous campaign last term in which they finished 10th in the Premier League table.

Arsenal are the fourth-placed team at 11/2 to win their first title since the 2003-04 season after their disappointing trophyless campaign last term.

Leicester are priced way out at 28/1 to retain their Premier League title following Claudio Ranieri’s men’s stunning triumph last season, while Tottenham and Liverpool are both 8/1 outsiders to win the top-flight crown next term.

Despite the thrilling nature of last term, there can be no doubt that the 2016-17 campaign has all the makings of an historic Premier League season.

The main transfers seem to have taken place on the touchlines ahead of the summer transfer window, with a host of top-class managers now ready to do battle what is regarded by most fans as the best league in the world.

And with a host of players continuing to be linked with transfer to the Premier League, the excitement ahead of next season could not be higher.
